Tunisia signed on Friday a loan agreement with Germany enabling it to borrow 45 million euros ($55 million) to “modernize” more than 300 of its educational institutions, the official Tunisia Agency Press (TAP) reported.
“Granted by the German Development Bank (KFW), the credit is repayable over 15 years with a 5-year grace period and an interest rate set at 3 percent,” Tunisia’s Minister of Finance Hakim Ben Hammouda told the press.
